Love Beirut Restaurants in Panama

4 Posted on 03 / 20 / 2014

At least once a month we head to Beirut Restaurant on the Amador Causeway so we can enjoy their vegetarian dishes. It also serves food for people who eat animals. The traffic is much easier on the causeway than in the city so now that we no longer live in the city we seldom visit that Beirut Restaurant, yet we used to eat there frequently when we did live in the city. Both locations are excellent. I love the outside deck on the causeway where you can see the ocean and the marina. The belly dancing on Thursday to Sunday night is a great treat. I love the service, and it is very consistently good. It seems that someone provides professional training to the servers - the service is way above any other service we have had in Panama. All in all it is a great dining experience. We go there with everyone who visits with us, and we have also held business meetings there.

Pros: Great tasting, well presented food, Excellent service, consistently , Great location -option inside or outside
Cons: None that I can think of

Busy street and not-so-friendly staff

3 Posted on 02 / 27 / 2014

The lentil soup and the combination platter were good.
However,there was a lot of noise from cars passing by.
Also the staff was not very welcoming.
The waitress did not look at us when serving meals,she was chewing gum and it was as if we were non existing.
Same for the others working on the patio.
They were chatting and laughing without giving attention to the guests.

Pros: Nice food
Cons: Location, Indifferent staff

Lots of Veg choices

4 Posted on 01 / 17 / 2014

Location: near Via EspaƱa , the busy shopping street, across from the Royal Casino & walking distance from many downtown hotels in El Cangrejo district

Food and ambiance: Beirut has a spacious outdoor patio and two indoor dining rooms, and a menu with many Middle Eastern veg options: fattoush salad, babaganoush , hummus, lentil soup, pita pizza, felafel, & combination platter of veg appetizers. Some familiar dishes include dairy, but others are purely vegan. Service is quick, and beer, wine, soft drinks are available. I liked the complimentary glasses of strong mint tea that ended our meal. The veggie combination platter called "Beirut" is big enough to share, and soups and salads make it a reasonably varied lunch or dinner option for vegetarians and vegans in this city with few veg-friendly restaurants.

Pros: Fresh salads & appetizers, Vegan soups, Homemade pita bread
Cons: Might be hookah smoking on patio
